inconsistent with the underlying law, and advisory opinions that are inconsistent, and implementations that is inconsistent with what congress intended and with what the law is. the work requirements for welfare cross it was very clear. i was a lead sponsor of the bill and there was no waiver capability for the report -- the work requirement, and he did it. immigration and others -- you have a bunch of issues. and what that does is create uncertainty. if the government can go and do what they want regardless of what the lot is -- what the law expert, and the government says coppola -- what the lot is, and the government says, and going to do it and go ahead and sue me. that is as much of the problem as the volume we have seen. the cost of the regulation is inconsistent with the underlying law that was passed by congress, or never even contemplated by congress. co2 is a toxic substance. i cannot imagine anyone who voted for the clean air act who would have suggested that was something that was covered under the definition when they passed that bill. the overriding issue

the 3% withholding tax, the medical loss ratio. the affordable care act act is a tax law. there are 24 new taxes. we find out the individual mandate is a tax. we have financial transaction taxes, medical device texas -- these things were created for people to be able to earmark their income and it is now taxed. you also get 16,000 to irs agents that will be monitoring electronic records. that is not how we repair health care. i wrote an op-ed piece talking about free market solutions. one of those key things is tort reform. talk to any doctor, catastrophic litigation is their biggest problem. >> congressman, you're not being honest. when you voted for the ryan plan, you voted to take $716 billion. i've never been in congress. let's be clear. this is future savings under the democratic version. they found waste, inefficiency and fraud, over-payments to insurance companies they are getting back to seniors through annual treating and closing down the hall. the difference here is -- closing the doughnut hole. the difference here is paul ryan top the seven and $16 billion was a good idea

people. half of what we spend on law enforcement, the court and the prisons is drug related, and to what end. look, this is not about advocating drug use. 50% of kids graduating from high school have smoked marijuana. that's an issue that belongs with families, not in the criminal justice system. [applause] >> anybody have any rebuttal? >> i have to make my statements first, and then my rebuttal. so as a medical doctor previously in clinical practice for about 25 years, i can say with a real understanding of the science of the health impact, that marijuana is it a substance that is dangerous because it's illegal. it is not illegal on account of being dangerous. because it's not dangerous at all. [applause] it is well known that the impacts of marijuana are dangerous because of the illegal drug trade from marijuana drug prohibition. so the most important thing we can do to get rid of the health problems associated with marijuana is to legalize it. and on day one, on day one a president, if she wanted to, could entrust the d.e.a. to oh, to -- could entrust the d.e.a. to do a really ra

difference, the equal pay title 7 lot did not take in end. under the law, if you did not file a complaint with the government within six months of the first discriminatory paycheck she got decades before, if she did not file a complaint, whether she knew about it or not, within six months of the first is the mandatory paycheck, -- first discriminatory paycheck, that employer was home free. it could pay her less every paycheck from then on. open and explicitly. there was nothing she could do about it except leave the job. that is what the supreme court said congress meant when it passed these laws prohibiting pay discrimination. it was a vigorous dissent from justice and ruth bader ginsberg that this made no sense whatsoever. she was joined by three other justices. first of all, who knowsafter six months that you pay is less -- second, if you know and you have enough of evidence, are you going to file a complaint within six months of the paycheck? are you going to figure, ok,i will prove my work and not be labeled as a troublemaker. it basically took that decision in what have so

she said i have to meet barack. so we have passed a law practice. -- she said we have back some basketball practice. this goes to the heart and then hits. barack obama and i believe as to our spouses that my doctor and his daughters, my granddaughters are entitled to every single opportunity my son is entitled to. every single opportunity. there is no exception. none. that is the fundamental difference between mitt romney and the president and i. the one issue that has not been discussed much as it should be in this campaign that will have more impact on the life of our daugthehters is to make up the purssupreme court appeared the next president will appoint one to possibly three new justices. just imagine the 40 years of progress we have fought to make for women in america. ask yourself, what are the prospects for a in a mitt romney appointed court? there is lots at stake in this election. it is not just that they run away from their positions now that they know they are not popular. they're trying to backpedal. there are two things that have really change the surprise me. i wa

, mostly from the republican side of the aisle to pass restrictive laws to disenfranchise a lot of eligible voters, mostly minorities in states like ohio and pennsylvania, where you have the republican speaker of the house admit that their voter id law was meant to defeat president obama. that definitely could have an impact. i am not worried about anybody stealing the election. i am were about in a close race, people who should be able to voted not being able to vote. host: speaking of close votes. this comes from one of our viewers. do not waste your vote, go for virgil. gary johnson is on the ballot. what role will third-party candidates have in close states in close races? guest: there was some concern early in virginia in terms of what the impact would be there. what you normally see, unless there is a strong campaign out there, you see about 1% of the total vote being split up between these candidates. that could make a difference in some of these close states. it is hard to predict. you are not getting enough in your sample. guest: i agree. it is tough to predict. we are see

. -- stand up for our rights and freedoms every single day. the very first law put an obama signed with the lily ledbetter. the president and vice- president know how important it is for women to make our own decisions about our own bodies, our own health care. [applause] so many women of my generation have fought hard for roe versus wade, access to contraception and for equal rights. we don't want out daughters and granddaughters to have to go back and fight the same battles that we fought decades ago.

the entitlements that don't even become law until 2014. the expansion of the subsidy. if we are having problems, why in the world would you vote for it bill that creates two new entitlements that costs 1.4 trillion dollars over the next 10 years. and expense we cannot pay for. this would solve the sequestration issue. >> the fact is that it extends medicare for 8 years. what have you done that has ever extended medicare? on the other side of the coin, you have tried to make it into a voucher system. you have run from your record. if i was a senior, i would be very concerned with you in terms of things like medicare and changing social security. >> once again distorting my record. there are people that have taken money out of medicare and that is president obama and your vote. that is a fact. it will affect medicare. it is the only way we can turn this thing around is to get serious about the discussion about medicare and social security. this is a new tax and a mandate that frankly montana ends don't like to be told what to do. you cannot admit that he made a mistake and voted for obam
